Common Good Vermont believes that Vermont’s nonprofit organizations are part of a larger social economy designed to improve the well-being of our people and environment. Vermont’s nonprofit sector impacts every single resident of Vermont. The state’s 3500+ public charities enrich the culture and beauty of our beloved state, provide essential services, and protect our natural world. The sector is a critical economic engine which creates more than 44,000 jobs and employes 13% of the state’s workforce.
The Result We Seek: A thriving nonprofit sector able to contribute to the well-being of Vermont.
Common Good Vermont is the only statewide organization in Vermont dedicated to uniting and strengthening all of the mission-driven organizations that serve the Green Mountain State. Common Good Vermont serves as the “go to” resource for our peers to share resources, gain skills, and build partnerships. This work is made possible through meaningful collaboration with many local, regional and state leaders, pointed toward a thriving nonprofit sector able to contribute to the well-being of Vermont.
Brief History: Common Good Vermont was launched in 2008 with the support of the Vermont Community Foundation and the A.D. Henderson Foundation, to meet the capacity building needs of the state’s nonprofit community and to strengthen the network of staff, board, consultants and allies working on Vermont’s behalf. Inspired by the previous work of the Vermont Association of Nonprofit Organizations (VANPO) and The Future of Vermont’s Nonprofit Sector: A Framework for Stewardship and Success (Grafton Conference, 2007), Common Good Vermont has grown into a network of 4500 people who attend events, share resources, subscribe to regular communications, and lead us into the future. The work could not be done with our partners and underwriters. Common Good Vermont is run by CCTV Center for Media & Democracy, founded in 1984, to build communities through media and collaboration.

- Key DifferentiatorVERMONT'S INDEPENDENT SECTOR Vermont (pop. 621,000) is a small, tightly knit rural state proud of its independent spirit and high levels of civic engagement. Vermont's independent sector (3000+ organizations, $4 billion annual revenue) plays a primary role in the delivery of human and cultural services and in the preservation of the state's cherished natural resources. Most social services—food, shelter, healthcare and education—are delivered within local and regional community settings. Often separated by geography (mountains, rivers, lakes), Vermont's 251 towns and 14 counties are increasingly knit together by broadband "build-out". Common Good Vermont leverages these electronic networks to bridge the barriers of Vermont's geography and the "beaten paths" of its hyper-local networks. New human and electronic networking activities will support the delivery of information and innovation to the state's community builders: project volunteers and professionals who, by virtue of their civic and nonprofit roles and responsibilities, are the lifeblood of the "green mountain state". Common Good's place-based and community virtual events are designed to improve the capacity of so many "small networks" that, improve Vermont's unique "quality of life".
